    I'm a big fan of movies like Office Space and Clerks. Movies with things I can relate to along with genuinely belly laugh moments and true classics like Airplane! Was wondering what everyone else enjoyed?

    My tastes are more in tune with TV, particlarly the British sitcoms, where it's more like poking fun at people and their quirks and habits: FAWLTY TOWERS, KEEPING UP APPEARANCES and ALLO ALLO rank as my all-time favourites.

    However, there are some American comedies I enjoy: CHEERS, FRASIER, MASH and ALF are great to watch even today.

    Office Space is my all time favorite comedy.

    Recently, pretty much anything with Judd Apatow attached to it.

    Hangover (just the first one)
    21 Jump Street
    I Love You, Man
    Role Models
    Superbad
    Old School
    Bluestreak
    Team America: World Police
    Coming to America
    Hot Fuzz (but I just love when Pegg and Frost are together)

    and I'll watch anything with Will Ferrel, no matter how bad it might be.

    The ones in my DVD collection, at least off the top of my head:

    Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein
    What's Up, Tiger Lily?
    Young Frankenstein
    Kentucky Fried Movie
    Monty Python & The Holy Grail
    Smokey & The Bandit
    National Lampoon's Animal House
    The Muppet Movie
    Caddyshack
    Airplane!
    Trading Places
    Ghostbusters
    Back To The Future
    Ferris Bueller's Day Off
    Napoleon Dynamite

    There's probably more in there beyond that, and too many to name that I don't have.

    I'm not much for comedy, so my list is fairly short:

    - South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut
    - Team America: World Police
    - Orgazmo
    - Beavis and Butthead Do America
    - Office Space

    I used to like Kevin Smith's movies, but my tastes seem to have changed dramatically, to the point I can't stand watching any of them now.
